This recipe was a hit! I added corn and did a fancy potato piping job on the top and it was great. I posted a pic. the 3 of us ate and only ate like a quarter of it. Freezing the rest for other meals. It does need some other seasonings for a little more flavor tho. Highly recommend!

I doubled the recipe and used an entire small can of tomato paste and this was wonderful! It will be added to our monthly rotation of meals, thanks for sharing!

I ususally get a little timid with these recipes where you make a gravy, because mine usually ends up burning or whatever, but this recipe was sooooo easy! I made the mashed potatoes last night, because I knew whatever I made today would be similar to this. The only changes I made was to add in diced celery for 1/2 of the carrots, because I didn't have enough carrots and my tomato paste was italian paste, but if anything, that added a dimension to it. Thank you!!!!! Update: made this again and split it between two pie dishes. The picture here is just the filling and I'm sorry I didn't get to snap a pic after the potatoes went on. What a comforting meal this makes!

Loved it! This is a great, easy, quick and healthy meal. I followed your recipe except that I put a layer of cheese over the veggie/meat layer and then spread mashed potatoes over that and then topped it with another layer of cheese after cooking for 25 minutes. I also added 1/2 tsp. of thyme to the veggie/meat mixture. This is comfort food! Thanks for submitting this one.

This was wonderful. I did make some changes though, I used ground Turkey instead of beef, frozen mixed vegetables, ketchup and I omitted the egg from the potatoes. I bought the new steam and mash potatoes and they were quick and easy. Overall this was a really good recipe. I did also season the meat while cooking it with Adobo and Nature's Seasoning.

Hearty and tasty meal that's easy to prepare - this will be a new St. Paddy's Day tradition in my house since my husband doesn't love corned beef. I did use homemade mashed potatoes with buttermilk and a sliced scallion, and added some garlic powder to the meat, but we still thought the dish needed a little "kick". Next time (and I WILL be making this again soon), I will season the meat/gravy a little more. I also subbed corn for the peas and think any other stew/soup veggies would be great too.

I added a small can of corn and a can of black beans. Instead of peas, I used edamames. It was GREAT. It made alot though - it was enough for 2 meals for my family of five. I froze the 2nd half and will make this one again.

We all really enjoyed this. (Two toddlers and two adults) I didn't have fresh carrots, but canned ones worked great and didn't have 1/2 c cheese, but used what I had and it still was delicious. Husband said "good recipe!" Which means it's a keeper. Thanks for sharing.
